The griev­ance re­dres­sal mech­a­nism (GRM) is well-de­fined and is fol­lowed by the var­i­ous in­ter­me­di­aries of the NPS and other pen­sion schemes. The mech­a­nism also pro­vides for the fol­low­ing: (i) stip­u­la­tion of time­lines for re­dres­sal of griev­ances; (ii) ap­point­ment of om­buds­man; (iii) ap­peal by a sub­scriber to the om­buds­man; and (iv) pro­vi­sion of penalty. The NPS has a mul­ti­lay­ered GRM that is cen­tral­ized at Cen­tral Record-Keep­ing Agency and is ap­proach­able through call cen­tre/in­ter­ac­tive voice re­sponse sys­tem (IVRS), Web-based in­ter­face, phys­i­cal com­plaints, etc. Griev­ances can be logged in through Cen­tral Griev­ance Mon­i­tor­ing Sys­tem (CGMS), which is main­tained by CRA.
